This week’s episode of Dexter titled ‘Helter Skelter’ was really good and the drama was higher than it has ever been. You definitely cannot miss this one if you are following the show. Check out the recap below.

He gives Dexter an Ultimatum of exposing himself and his safety or helping him take care of a little problem. Isaak explains there is a contract on is life and the killer is already in Miami preying on Jim.
As Dexter makes his way to the crime scene he bumps into his sister Debra Morgan and strikes up a convo. He admits that her love for Dexter is “logical” and he understands why she feels that way.

Dexter simply states that he will find out Dexter’s motives for murder if Hannah is harmed.
Dexter asks Debra to help him save Hannah and also get rid of Sirko. The two talk for a while and Debraends up going into a long speech and end sits with how she will help Dexter but not for Hannah’s sake;it’s for his.
LaGuerta is off an around town and decides to pay a visit to a well known Miami Metro Retiree, Tom who meddles in other people’s affairs. She explains how she believes the Bay Harbor Butcher is still at large and requests his help to find them. Tom rudely declines her offer and states that Doakes was the Bay Harbor Butcher period.
Debra and Dexter continue to have their own issues and Deb really worries about Dexter’s well being. Dexter then goes and takes out one of the two assassins and prepares to kill the second. The two decide to use Dexter as bait and then lure him into his fate.
Tom ultimately comes crawling back to LaGuerta and admits he was sour earlier about not wanting to help her. He says he was really hurt that LaGuerta prevented him from receiving his full benefits package, but understands whys he needs his help. The two then sit down to eat together.
